"Edward Albee is a national treasure, recipient of the National Medal of Arts and the 2005 Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement. Albee worked in the experimental off-Broadway movement in the early ’60s. The Broadway premiere of his Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (first produced in 1962) and the subsequent film version with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton landed Albee on the international stage. Despite Pulitzer Prizes for A Delicate Balance (1967) and Seascape (1975), Albee’s maintained a continuing attraction to the Theater of the Absurd."
